New British research vessel will not be named "Boaty McBoatface," say grumpy old killjoys.

But the attached submarine will get that name.

If the people’s will was ignored, their voice was heard: The name Boaty McBoatface will live on as a high-tech remotely operated submarine that will collect data and samples.
“We’re ensuring that the Boaty name lives on through the sub-sea vehicle that will support the research crew,” Mr. Johnson said.
Still, that failed to satisfy supporters of the Boaty McBoatface handle, who made clear that this was not what they had voted for.
Shouldn't the sub be named "Subby McSubface?"
